Officially Forgotten?

Postby VileTerror » 05 Jan 2018, 20:13

So, based on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63EhzL_UtGk&t=4m48s it sounds like these forums have officially been forgotten, which is absolutely terrible to hear.

WE EXIST! WE EXIST!

To be fair, I just think it's the way the net has gone. More instant feedback style communities seem to be the thing. Personally, I find Discord obnoxious but hey, that's me. <shrugtake> I know I don't post here much, but I do still value this place.

I prefer the forums because it feels slower. I get intimidated by discord by how instant it is.

Yeah! I have no idea how anybody understands what's going on there.

I'm too much of a completionist for Discord, I need to read everything happening or nothing. And I'm too busy to keep up with everything. Forums are much more my speed.

Seems a fair amount of us are still here and checking, just there's not much posting happening. Maybe the lack of weekly videos has less people coming to comment on that, as well as the switch to YouTube being an easy way to comment (compared to stuff like The Escapist or Blip)

I'm trying to avoid visiting the vent thread because posting about bad stuff wasn't helping me.
My relationship status is too strange to document in the gay thread too.
I check these forums daily for new stuff.

I've tried Discord. I just can't gel with it. Forums are much more my style.

Too much to ask?

Postby VileTerror » 08 Jan 2018, 18:03

SO! What do we do to attract the crew back on to the forums? I would very much like to be able to interact with them, at least a little. To get some key and time-sensitive questions answered, even if it's an answer of "we're not sure."

I don't comment on youtube because I don't want my Google/gmail/real name account linked to my Youtube account. I just don't do Discord. Really not my thing. I rarely follow live-streams because the timing is just off for me and live streams aren't my thing to begin with (I just don't have time to sit through a 3 hour stream, even if I do love thinks like tinker, tailor ,solder, fry.

Personally I think we'd get more visitors here too if we'd just get that sort of shout-out in a video/podcast/livestream. We can't be the only people that don't like the chaotic instant-ness-ness of things like discord or twitch chat

Edit to say: I've brought back my Hindenburg avatar. Because the forum might be dead and MasterGunner might no longer be here, but that Zeppelin will be there dangnamit!

I have to admit I've pretty much given up on these here forums given how little activity there is on here.

They say "be the change you want to see in the world."
So here I am; posting in these forums, so they're more active. Perhaps we could all do a little part to build toward the greater whole which these forums truly represent?

I keep checking the forums. I don't mind the Discord, but it feels redundant to me, particularly with the Twitch Chat. It basically feels like a threaded version of Twitch Chat. And that's fine... But the forums are something distinct, something different. The asynchronicity appeals to me. You can make short posts, long posts, whatever. You can make your point however you want. With chats and Discord, you are limited to just short bits in the hustle and bustle.
